It has been a long time since I wear glitters on the eyes but I wondered if this Glitter primer from Elf would be great as an eyeshadow primer, so I bought it to test.
Instructions: Apply a thin coat to the eyelid, blend. Tap on glitter eyeshadows with a finger or brush while primer is still damp.
The texture (as shown below next to Maybelline Master Prime base in Prime & Matte for comparison) is interesting. It comes out of the tube like a runny lotion but turns slightly thicker as it dries and blends out clear. Sticky to the touch but the eyeshadows I put on top of it are still blendable.
I also tried it under a few glittery eyeshadows and got similar result. No glitters ended up under the eyes through the day, so it held up.
Ingredients: Water, Caprylic/ Capric Triglyceride, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candellila) Wax, Synthetic Beeswax, Petrolatum, Stearic Acid, Copernica Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Cetearyl Alcohol, PVP, Glycerin, etc.
The tube has 0.4oz/ 11.5g of product, only costs $2 on Elf website.
